Statement:

 

These watercolors are produced regarding the horror images of propaganda by the Muslim radicals EIL, DAESH and Isis and also the ones who are fighting them: the Peshmergas.

The point is to deal with violence and death images, from our media and information context:
The war, the riots, the terrorism and so on so on...

These watercolors are painted with human tears...

This series is also a way to deal with the famous series "Les misères de la Guerre" of Jacques Callot XVII century and the "Horreur de la Guerre" of Francisco Goya XVIII century...
